The Ogun State Police Command says it has arrested one Okwudili Okoro for allegedly hacking to death his elder brother, Azuibike Okoro and his wife, Jacinta.
Why he committed the act?
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said on interrogation, the Ebonyi State indigene claimed to have served his deceased brother as an apprentice in his cosmetics trade for three years, and when it was time for him to be settled, his brother made excuses.
Oyeyemi said the suspect further added that when he realised that his brother was not ready to settle him, he contracted his accomplice, Kenneth.
“The suspect told the police that they bought two cutlasses, sharpened them and headed for his deceased brother’s house in the Ijako area of the state.
“The suspect further told his interrogators that on getting to the deceased’s house, they met him eating with his wife and before he could utter a word, they had descended heavily on them with the cutlasses and hacked them to death,” the police spokesman said.
